The passion for knowing, understanding and figuring it all out
In the pursuit of knowing everything there is to know, we drive ourselves nuts inhaling information. It is as if we think we will find "the answer" and be done seeking. We drive ourselves nuts trying to figure things out and become experts on material. The funny part is the more we know, the more we create to know. There is never an end game in this process. We know this, yet we still do this to ourselves! Like with anything, we can get imbalanced with our seeking. When we are in balance, we are seeking with ease. Eager to know, eager to understand. We peel back the layers in curiosity and fun. When we get out of balance we drive ourselves nuts, knowing and understanding and figuring out.
Think of it this way, you wouldn't try to get to know your new cat by dissecting it. You would embrace it as a whole being. Snuggle with it, communicate with it, experience it. That is what the world is asking you to do. Snuggle it, embrace it, experience it as a whole. Drill down if you must, but know there is always another layer to uncover that is part of the whole.
Insightful Inspiration of the week.
What are you trying to "understand" better? What information are you trying to analyze, pick a part, think through? Are you in balance with it? Is it create ease and fun in your life or chaos and struggle? If it is creating chaos and struggle, can you let go of it a little bit. Let it show itself to you rather than you figuring it all out. If you can't let it go, explore why. What is it that you are telling yourself will happen if you don't "know" this? What are you telling yourself will happen when you do "know it"? Release yourself from this obligation. Step back and see what hand the universe wants you to shake next. In the mean time, sit back, relax and experience what you already do have "figured out".
As always, sending you love and light. Thanks for reading.
